Recycleye celebrates its first anniversary creating a more sustainable and circular world.
A new AI system to identify every item in the entire waste streams by material, object and brand.
Recycleye began its operation last year with only Victor Dewulf and Peter Hedley, with the aim to bring transparency to the recycling industry and accelerate the world’s transition to a circular economy. A year on and Recycleye is a fully-fledged company closer to accomplish its mission. EIT RawMaterials has been supporting Recycleye to grow both operationally and strategically.

While COVID-19 may have slowed down some companies, Recycleye has only accelerated. Over the past year, with EIT RawMaterials Accelerator support, the start-up has been able to achieve even greater milestones, with some of the greatest achievements including:
- Building dataset from 5000 images across 4 classes to 2,453,284 images across 28 classes
- Building a vision system capable of identifying all waste materials
- Product deployments across the UK and France
- Expanding to a team of 12 of the best technologists and creatives
EIT Raw Materials is looking forward to continuing its partnership with Recycleye team supporting their mission to digitise and decentralise the waste industry.
